French shoes and accessories designer, Christian Louboutin presented last week a new collection of shoes,Les Nudes. It includes five classic models of the brand in five shades of beige, each shade is designed to cater to a variety of skin tones. For this event the company has timed out an applications for the iPhone, which will help each client to choose the right shade , avoiding a visit to the store.
“This collection offers a spectrum of nude, re-imagining the perception of the color as a pale blush, and introducing it as the color of flesh, which ranges well beyond this traditional reference,” say Louboutin.”The shoes are there to give the woman an extra lift, not to take attention away from the legs and what she is wearing. They disappear like magic and become a fluid extension of her legs, as in a sketch, elongating the silhouette.”
Soon the collection will be available online and some models like The Fifi, a round-toe court (£395) and the Flo (peep toes, £525) are already available in stores.
